Silver Manhattan Lyrics by Jesse Malin 



Silver Manhattan by Jesse Malin


Opening Lines
Standing on the corner
Where I first saw her
In the summer sunset
She came in from the Midwest
Books that she's reading
We'll all dropouts anyway
Tonight she's bleeding
Like a Tennessee Williams play

Don't look back silver Manhattan
All your dreams are true
Night goes black
They can't put a price on you
She was on a mission
Another drunk musician
Fix your hair and makeup
Talk about he breakup
I'm an illusion
But I need it anyway

Don't look back silver Manhattan
Can you still be true?
She wore black
Summer came shining through

Well she had a baby
Moved up to Brewster

Don't look back silver Manhattan
All your dreams are true
I'll be back and we'll have a drink or two

How do you make it alone
Written in lipstick or stone
How do you make it alone
Innocent, listless and stoned
